Unexpaix Can bands reproduce? I feel like Haken and Meshuggah had a child. Favorite track: Stray The Skies.

somethingthatworks This album is beyond incredible. Bandcamp told me that this review can't go over 500 words, so here's my short version:

I love (pretty much) all djent. However, this album and Catch 33 by Meshuggah are the only two djent albums I've ever listened to where I can listen days on end and love it even more after I'm done. I don't think that this album will ever get old to me. Favorite track: Owls.

Thomas Kasza It's good to see that a band can still be quite unique and this fantastic. It's a genius album musically - incredible melodies over great rhythms. Favorite track: Starburn.

Track Name: The Same War
THE SAME WAR

There's a brick giving up on symmetry
There's a drug giving birth to a harmony
There's a confident choice of minority
While my mind has a new found poverty

If you gaze at familiar tragedies
You should find my ghostlike strategies
I am defining the bones of my disbeliefs
Never reaching a truce with my enemies

You are the criminal stealing a valuable sun door
You are the vulnerable waiting to be in the same war
Standing in line will you be ok?
You fall down now

Control, confuse, confine
Get a hold on a circular decline
Speak out degrees of entrapment
And embrace the rules of its content

Lay down your arms
Lay down your visions of harm
There are no true mirrors
Only thoughts that steer us

You fall down, you fall
You fall down, you fall
Track Name: Stray The Skies
STRAY THE SKIES

In the beginning a song created thirst
Concluding a microphone formula giving Earth
A flutter inside, that's coming alive
I'm absorbing external violence
I'm jagged by an effort to please my audience
Approaching in here, I'm choking

I'm getting used to closing eyes everywhere
'Cause I'm beginning to stray the skies everywhere

I am silent but breathing heavily
I try to make sense of my skins complexity
My muse is designed to alter your mind
I am moving before this avalanche
That's constantly pushing me into consequence
It's floating in here, we're choking

This sound is unbearable, aching
My captain in dissonance loosing ground
Few are the divers having air enough to never drown
Track Name: Starburn
STARBURN
I've been waiting all this time
Watching my shadows arrange
I've been straying from the course hoping to make a change
I have worked against my code
Forcing my feet to align
I've been straining every cord controlling my slumber spine

He will never leave his burning star
He will never cross the tainted element
He will never leave his solitude
He will never leave his solitude

I've been training to depart
Like statues preparing to fly
I've collected every sight needed to calm my eye
I've been holding back the night
Now I'm holding back the day

Patiently reaching for dark terrain
Hoping his self-restraint disappears
He will keep searching for confidence
Watching the evidence in his fears

But he will never leave his burning star
He will never cross the tainted element
He will never leave his solitude
'Cause he will never leave his thoughts of you
Track Name: Owls
OWLS

She pays attention to the word
And the tiny sound she heard
Amusing the tigers in line
He's drawing flowers in her face
And a mask to fill their place
And soon they will pour the silent wine

She tries to pull the curtain down
Stabilise her moving crown
Hoping his hands will follow
He will speak but never tell
About the hole beneath his shell
And soon they will pour the silent wine

And the owls flew out of all the doors he'd locked up
To the deer she's walking down
She is still dreaming
She is still dreaming

Every night is lingering from talk so slow
Tomorrow we'll be different she's been told

And the owls flew out of all the doors he'd locked up
To the deer she's walking down
She is still dreaming
They are soon leaving
Track Name: Your Mind Is A Helpless Dreamer
YOUR MIND IS A HELPLESS DREAMER

We've been around for so long, we've started dreaming of the past
We'll find the gleam in our eyes and close our lids to make it last

Now don't you try to stop me, I'm not content in my role
These walls of dirt are pending, pushing my need of control

These moments are keeping your mind away and keeping injustice now
These moments are leading your head astray and keeping injustice now

We've sung these songs for so long, you've seen us scream behind the mold
We've dug the perfect treasures but never seen the modern gold

You did your time, don't you know
You don't have to conquor mentality once more
You did your time, you should know
Freedom of thought isn't worth fighting for
Track Name: Emily
EMILY

Speak with me tonight won't you please?
Cause I won't be able to sleep
You are my last gravity
But you are the least outspoken

Emily awake
Emily, he can't reach you
He's sleeping on islands now
Track Name: Gutter Moon
GUTTER MOON

We want it all, addressing higher birds
I think we should have been a trinity
We want it all, addressing higher birds
I think you should have been a bird in me

Hey, let's watch the moon
It's leaving soon, let's sing its tune
Hey, how long a flight
We steal tonight this mournful sight

We want it all (to glow under this night sky), addressing higher birds
I think we should have been a trinity
I think you should have been a bird in me

All these scenarios under the moon
All the intrusions of sight
This exhibition I've dreamed in the gutter for so long
All these scenarios under the moon
All these confusions we find
My definitions have been in the gutter for too long
Track Name: A Stare Without Eyes
A STARE WITHOUT EYES

I saw you drifting through the street glaze
The victim you've become
I have never seen a shape so vaguely formed
You've been running for the light boy
You've drawn out your escape
Now do you even have the will to let light in?

All that will scare you, all that you fear to find
Is caught in a fire you cannot leave behind

I saw you covering your murder
Your self-immunity fails
Your eager soul is growing eyes upon itself
It's all a trick with the tail boy
Feel free to make a blur
There's still an honesty in knowing when to lie

I'm strangely comfortable hanging with my head down
As if the laws of human physics are removed
Today I know that I will do no harm
I have been paralyzed by motion draining images emerging from your face

All that will scare you, all that you fear to find
Is caught in a fire you cannot leave behind
All that she told you, words that you fear to find
Caught in a fire you cannot leave behind
Track Name: Feed The Creatures
FEED THE CREATURES

In this tempo
Now we're here again
Time to feed the creatures
Those who will attend
Everything in detail
Every inch pristine
In this tempo you and I come clean

Words are contradictions
Lungs are obsolete
We have fed the creatures
Those we never meet

Is this just a slumber?
Are we just asleep?
Wake me in a fire
That is where they keep

Tell me now, alliance
Tell me how to see a fortune here
Show me how to fly and tell me how to make her reappear
Tell me now everything 'cause I want everything
This is not a remedy, this is not a part of my home
So leave me alone

You, are you burning out?
(Out of the shell you promised to be, leaving it hollow?)
You said I was to burn in you
(What have you left to give her? How do you share a world of restlessness?)
(When are you done evoking battlefields on all the plains that you possess?)
Track Name: Inmazes
INMAZES

I heard lightning strike
I saw bodies moving
I took up the fight into valleys glooming

I have caught them all
Every glimpse of failure
Why do you still call and question my behaviour?

I heard lightning strike
I saw bodies moving
I will move if my strings would start approving

She must find another home
But she won't leave a man of silence

Hear these voices hear the cheers of choices
There are colors following your kind
Don't you dare forget the purple water shining
You've been dressed in disaster and turned every brick that your head will combine
Now why are you still trapped in mazes you designed?
